Three D modeling of string motion

Abstract

"The use of transducers that convert sound energy into electrical energy enables the manipulation of sound from stringed musical instruments. Magnetic pickups have ruled the music industry for the latter half of the last century and into the new millennium. Since the 1970s, there have been attempts to replace magnetic pickups with optical pickups using photonic sensors. A major problem that faces both options is determining the plucking direction so that the full magnitude of the string oscillation can be used to produce sound. Optical pickups provide better options to deal with this problem...Three possible solutions to this problem will be discussed: "Virtually Rotating Sensors", "Mechanically Rotating Sensors:, and "Using Light Sensors in Conjunction with a Piezo Element (Hybrid Sensor)", as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each approach"--Abstract, leaf iii.
